I had this all bookmarked a couple of weeks ago, but deleted them when I 
got my system working :(

The easiest way to get your kernel patched correctly is to use ketchup - 
not the regular ketchup, but one that understands the RT patches.

Here's the RT-aware ketchup:


Have a read of the RT wiki:


RT patches:


I think you are right - there doesn't appear to be a patch against yet; I would advise that you get ketchup to build you 
2.6.23-rt1 to start with.

You would probably benefit from joining the linux-rt-users mailing list 
(I did!).  Details on at vger.kernel.org:


Hope this helps!
